Foris Vineyards Fly-Over Red 2016
Merlot 75%, Cabernet Sauvignon 15%, Cabernet Franc 10%
A blend of classic Bordeaux grape varieties designed for everyday enjoyment. The fruit for this delicious wine was sourced entirely from vineyards in the warmer eastern reaches of the Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon. Fermented in small lots and aged for 18 months in French oak, Fly Over Red offers soft and generous flavors of blackberry, black currant, and pomegranate with toasty vanilla spice and fine herbs adding complexity.
When the first hardy settlers arrived in the Illinois Valley over a century ago, it would take over two weeks by horse and carriage to travel from San Francisco to Portland. Today it takes just two hours by plane. Unfortunately for many members of the national wine press, this modern travel convenience means they will never see first hand on of the most pristine and remote wine growing regions in America. We wave and hold up signs as they fly over head, but at 30,000 feet, we really can't tell if they are waving back. Luckily for you, you can bring a little bit of this wondrous place to your home any time you like. If you feel a bit more adventurous and would like to come see us in person, we welcome visitors seven days a week. Bonus points for those arriving on horse and carriage.
